SYNOPSIS
Solar Energy, at its most basic, is radiation generated by the sun that reaches the earth as light and heat. That energy can be converted into a usable form by man-made means.
COMPARISON
Solar energy is the best energy/fuel that exists. The mother of all earthly fuels, solar energy reaches us not only from light and heat, but also in wind, waves, and of course, biomass-in which plants capture some of that solar energy and, through photosynthesis, convert it chemical energy.

There is no more fundamental fuel than solar energy, there is no more abundant fuel, there is no more powerful fuel. There is also no fuel more difficult to harness.

While fossil fuels are expensive cause pollution and will eventually run out, Soalr causes no emmisions is free and unlimited.

CONCERNS
One major concern is the cost of solar power. Solar panels (accumulators) are not cheap; and because they are constructed from fragile materials (semiconductors, glass, etc.), they must constantly be maintened and often replaced.
Further, since each photovoltaic panel has only about a 40% efficiency, single solar panels are not sufficient power producers. However, this problem has been offset by the gathering together of many large panels acting in accord to produce energy. Although this setup takes up much more space, it does generate much more power.

SYNOPSIS

Solar energy is vital to support life on earth, it helps to grow our food, light our days, influence weather patterns, provide heat, and can be used to generate solar electricity. Solar electricity relies upon man-made devices such as solar panels or solar cells in order to provide a source of clean, and low cost renewable energy.
We have used energy from the sun to provide electricity for many years, in the form of solar cell calculators and other small, low energy consuming devices.

Solar doesn't pollute. Im not 100% but I dont think it gives us as much power as fossil fules do but it helps the enviroment.yes i think so.....
CONCERNS
Admitting that there is no perfect solution to our energy needs, Hannes Leetaru believes that the enemy of the perfect shouldn’t be the enemy of the good. More to the point, Leetaru believes that future problems will look a lot like the ones we’ve had for decades.
“The most important thing to consider is that we need a reliable electricity grid,” he said – and he believes one way to ensure that the grid is effective and diverse is to allow for the transportation of electricity from different areas.
“For example, wind is a good source of energy in Wyoming,” he said. “If the grid was extended and made larger (capable of carrying more electricity), then wind could be a greater mix for the national needs.”

COMPARISON
fossil fuel burn and is poluting our eair and our ozone solar energy help from hurting hte planet by not using energy like wired power.
CONCERNS
It has some problems as like if on a cloudy day or a day without sun it wont harnest enough energy.another things is to dispose of the old solar pannels.

SYNOPSIS: Solar enegy is energy that we get from our sun. We depend on this energy as it grows our trees and supports life on Earth. It also supports are new technology such as Solar Panels which converts solar energy to electricity.

COMPARISON: Its better than fossil fuels becasus its a renewable resource. We have the sun come out everyday instead of having to wait millions of years for fossil fuels to form. Also fossil fuels pollute the Earth causing it harm.

CONCERNS: With solar power enery it can only be use a limited of time. The sun only comes out during the and once night comes solar energy cannot be used.

SYNOPSIS (Summary of source)
Solar Energy,Genetic Engineering and World-Wide Communication together have the potential to create a more equal distribution of the world's wealth. Solar power in the Third World could connect even the most remote areas to all of the information on the internet, potentially ending the cultural isolation of the poorest countries.

COMPARISON (Why it is better than fossil fuels)
Its better than fossil fuels because its something we always have and it is renewable resourse, and solar energy don't contaminate the enviroment and fossil fuils pullate the enviroment.
